hello
i'm trying to connect to my mobile network by using a usb tethering application on my phone
wireless tethering works fine but the range is very short and the signal fluctuates (plus it heats up and eats the phone battery) so i would prefer to use a wired connection

i've enabled RNDIS support in the linux kernel but i'm not sure how to create the /etc/init.d/net.xxx and start it

here's the log when i start tethering
Code:

Wow I just tried it on my phone and when I enabled tethering it created usb0;
All I did was dhcpcd usb0 and it connected :)
Looks like it used the modules cdc_ether and rndis_host
Code:

usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
scsi6 : usb-storage 1-3:1.0
scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access     Google,  Inc.Nexus One         PQ: 0 ANSI: 2
sd 6:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg3 type 0
sd 6:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk
usb 1-3: USB disconnect, address 4
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_ether
rndis_host 1-3:1.0: usb0: register 'rndis_host' at usb-0000:00:1a.7-3, RNDIS device, fa:c6:01:4c:4b:71
usbcore: registered new interface driver rndis_host

 usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr fa:c6:01:4c:4b:71 
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

gentooten ~ # dhcpcd usb0
usb0: dhcpcd 4.0.15 starting
usb0: broadcasting for a lease
usb0: offered 192.168.42.163 from 192.168.42.129
usb0: acknowledged 192.168.42.163 from 192.168.42.129
usb0: checking 192.168.42.163 is available on attached networks
usb0: leased 192.168.42.163 for 3600 seconds

I was testing with a Gentoo Live dvd with kernel 2.6.34-r-8

with a big more googling and your post i managed to get all the drivers i needed enabled in the kernel
then i symlinked net.lo to net.usb0 and it works!
thanks
